    When OS files have been infected by viruses, Trojans, worms etc.....they restructure all program files too.......even if you are able to clean your system in some weeks, which I doubt very much, the OS wont function smoothly, giving unexpected errors....the options you have, is either a friend to come over & do the cleaning stuff, provided he/ she has some computer know how OR to format & fresh install only 1 OS....either XP Or Millennium....& after all updating take an image & store that image on some inactive partition of yr machine’s drive.....online u’ll never be able to get yr issue solved unless some smart member makes a house call to rectify the issue.......my 2 cents of advice & experience!!

    Good luck again....

    Can anyone help. When I burn a dvd from Adobe Premiere Element 2.0 the begining of the video has dropped frames. Then it stops and goes away. From the captured video there are no dropped frames, is there something I can do to fix the problem.

    @mrbenz04 - You need to start your own topic otherwise it's a hijack of this thread


    @petjelly -
    the disk with WME I would assume is (windows ME ) ME is short for millinium, if you have XP BUT can't find the disks you can download either xp for floppy or XP for CD from microsoft and then burn to what ever media,i used the floppy and right cliked on the package i downloaded and opened and it gave instructions automatically (you'll need six floppy's) i assume the CD version is the same,you may be able to get earlier versions of windows the same way

    petjelly you'll have to wait for dolphin but to me the blue disks sound like the xp disks ,i can't be sure since my machine did'nt come with them hence the download for floppy grrrrrrrrrr

    lol burning stuff is what i cannot do. because my driver doesn't detect anything. this is been goin on for soo long. i figure it would start working by now. ive tried soo many things. someone said reinstally my windows is the solution to fixing this problem. is that the case? ive had people try to fix the viruses from my computer. thats great my computer doin fine now but still my orignal problem was my drivers not working. HOW DO I FIX IT????? anyone know?

    On startup the comp runs a detection test of all drives etc ,long before the OS is up and running,hence not a virus problem and is why a previous poster mentioned hardware and offered his services,the fact you can't even get detection in safe mode supports that theory.

    petjelly,

    The way I see it scorpNZ may be right. However, it seemed to me like we were able to get your machine pretty well clean. There is a possibility that your o/s is corrupt, however, before we take that step I think you should buy this drive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16827106013

    This is a very good drive for an unbelievable price. I am buying one even though I do not need another! (I already have two!) Buy that drive and let's see what happens. It may not be a driver problem, it may be a hardware problem, and you can't go wrong with a price for a lite-on like that! After you get the drive you will have a fresh copy of Nero and Power DVD-5.

    Then check back with us to let us know if it is working. That is your best bet for right now. I don't want you to try to re-install your o/s right now. First I want to see if it is software related or hardware related.

    Thanks!

    P.S. Sorry I've been away.

    @dolphin His highness the Sr. Member!!!

    No offence intended before I start this post.

    Being a med doc we often do spot diagnosis, reading the first 2 pages of her post I new it’s a corrupt OS….when AVG detected Trojans worms etc, plus she was going on line with out a fire wall, updates………….

    I don’t understand what you guys were & still are trying to achieve………..accept your ignorance for heavens sake at least now…….you still think it’s a hardware issue BUT NO………..what she needs is a proper OS & progies installation with updates…..she doesn’t need no hard drives………what she needs is format & fresh install…..

    I have a query……..if I was supposedly a female member would you have taken such non fruitful pains to solve my issues….…….lol NO again…………

    repeatedly you guys put her through an ordeal of posting logs which you don’t no a bit about…..yes logs might have helped if some one was a university graduate software specialist….. Were you & are you trying to impress her??

    She has 1 option…….complete format & software installation by some pc store or a house call by a member lol…….

    Well one suggests her to buy a new drive, saying he bought 2…….send one to her for trial she shall return back if not needed…….

    Regards!

    Good luck!!

    The decision as to repair by a technician is hers and don't you think petjelly has already thought of that and instead wants to give it a go at repairing herself,there are some of us who prefer to DIY, you have already voiced your opinion in your first post and that for the most part has been ignored and you repeated what you had already stated earlier in your 2nd post with a few smartass comments thrown in to get bites i have no time to spare to humour you any further C.U

    I don't know what your problem is with me. Why do you chose to attack me? Do you want to turn this into a flame thread, I don't. The fact that I'm a Senior Member, while your a Junior, has nothing to do with anything! It only means that I've made more posts than you have here at AfterDawn. And I do take your opening remarks as being a little offensive.

    I'll take your points one-by-one.

    1> The OS is not infected any more. She has been advised, several times, to get all the updates and a firewall. All we can do is advise, we can't hold her hand and make her.

    You imply that your a medical doctor and you make "spot diagnosis", are they always right? Have you ever been wrong? I've known of many doctors that have been. Sometimes, problems are not what they seem to be at first. If you haven't learned that, you should. To add to my above comment, it's like you can't make someone take their medicine. All you can do is advise.

    2> It was never suggested she get a new hard drive. I guess you reply without checking things out carefully. The problem has been that her CD writer doesn't read or write disks. She isn't even able to read pressed disks. This is a hardware not OS problem. I haven't told her to buy anything. It was others that suggested that she purchase a new drive.

    3> The fact that she is female has nothing to do with it. Yes, I have taken time and more effort with others. It doesn't matter to me if it is a male or female. Why do you even bring something like this up?

    4> One doesn't need be a Grad student to be able to read a log file correctly. My experience with computers goes back to the "punch card" days. Can you say that? I've forgotten more than most Grads!

    Here again, you bring up gender. What is your problem?

    5> Once again,it isn't a software/OS problem.

    6> Two writers, not hard drives as you imply. Please read more carefully.

    7> I agree with you that Windows Mellinieum is bad. Ever hear of Windows Bob? Worse than Windows ME!

    Good show dolphin2!

    The other thing that dolphin didn't mention was, if you take the time to look at the post more carefully, petjelly is running XP & not ME!

    Now the only reason I suggested for her to get a new drive was because of the sale on the Lite-on drive. I am even buying one because it is always good to have a backup.

    I also noticed in your post that many of your comments were directed at me as well. I also take offense to that!

    petjelly please ignore the last few post and let us know if a new drive does the job. Like dolphin2 said, everything is in order as long as you take the time to get a firewall & MS updates. I think [bold](please notice I said, "I think", if anyone is going to try to judge my opinion again!)[/bold] that it is the drive. Your software issue is out of the way, and the only other thing I can think of is replacing the drive.

    On your previous drive we updated drivers and you were still not able to read. We cleaned your o/s and you are still not able to read. I hate to suggest for someone to spend money, but I must admit this particular drive is a good one, and normal price is in the $60.00 range, they use to be in the $100 dollar range! Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.

    @syxguns & dolphin2

    have been following the thread from the start to see if I could get some idea why my drive won't read certain cd's, aint had any problem until I put in a drive (combo drive - GSA 4166B), it reads some media, but doesn't even recognize others, like no disk inserted.
    Only problem there is that I've got a butt load of the "other media" . I realize this might be worthy of another thread, but,, while we're here. just let me know if i need to start one.
    By the way,,, you guys just really rock,,,,awsome

    Welcome to Ad! Yes your subject is worth a new thread. Start a new one and you may PM me with the thread link. Let me know what steps you have taken so far and put the details of your drive on the thread. That way we can start from scratch.

    Thanks

    petjelly-

    With the XP disk you should be able to do an update on your O/S. This will restore any files in your registry, but I will warn you now that you are liable to lose information in the process. Make sure you have a backup of all of your files.

    The last time I formatted my machine and re-installed the O/S it took several days to re-install my programs. I highly recommend not doing it. From your last post your system seems clean. If you re-install the O/S that does [bold]NOT[/bold] mean your drive will work!

    Take precautions before you re-install!

    All of this is, of course, if the drive can read the Windows CD! If the drive has/is failing and your in the middle of a reinstall and it dies, you'll be in worse shape than you are now. IMHO, I wouldn't try an install with a drive that has reading problems.
